Sex and Cigarettes.

<><><><><><><><><><>

Cigarette smoulders...

been ignored for a while

all I can see is that

blaze in your eyes

when you stormed out in style.

><

Glasses in masses,

left empty and drained

icy with sweat,

as they squat on our table

reflecting my pain,

somewhere a Sax wails

a lonesome refrain.

><

The candle casts shadows...

but yours left with you

I'm alone in a booth

that was meant to hold two

Just me and my shadow

are all that remain

plus six shots of vodka

to cushion my pain.

><

My cigarette dies...

ashes hang in mid-air

just like our love

that I thought was still there

perhaps one more drink...

do I care...I don't dare...

fumbling in my pockets

to find taxi fare

for that long journey home

to a place we don't share.

><

My cigarette falls

to the floor.... suicidal

as again, and again

your words play a recital

of all the went wrong

with our love once so vital.

><

Then the cigarette's swept

from my side with a broom

by a waitress who leaves

a sweet trail of perfume

much the same kind that you left

as you ran from this room.

><

S o o n....

a lady with jazzy

blue eyes comes to me

claiming she's heard it all....

offers me company,

I query her name...

she just sighs, "Melody."

><

Two more

cigarettes lit up...

smoulder side by side

the smoke intermingles

but it fails to hide

my needs left denied.

><


More drinks and some small talk,

then we're both outside

and it looks like I'm in

for another long ride.

><

Now my cigarette smoulders

by a bed...burning low

snuggled together

in its softly lit glow

after Melody's played

a duet we both know .

><

In the morning

with a New Port I'll quietly go

leaving tracks of depression

in the fresh fallen snow.
